Identity Management in the IoT

Identity Management in the IoT (Internet of  things). IoT is more like an umbrella term that encompasses different architectures where for example things can talk to each other, talk to a computer sitting at home or in the cloud, to a proxy or mobile phone or even to a cloud service  either directly or through a mobile app or gateway. Depending on the distribution of functionality and capabilities of the elements in the architecture, analysts have defined for example thing-centric, cloud-centric, gateway-centric, smartphone-centric and enterprise centric architectures for the IoT.
